Enjoy year-round comfort without installing inefficient and time-consuming ductwork with the Friedrich M21DYF Mini-Split Heat Pump. A great solution for apartments, home additions, computer server rooms, and any space lacking windows or exterior walls, this dual-zone ductless split system mounts high on the wall and out of direct view. In addition to super-efficient operation, this mini-split AC is extremely quiet, as the condenser unit remains outside preventing noise interruption indoors.
The Friedrich M21DYF includes 2 air handlers – one with a cooling capacity of 9,500 BTUs and another with a cooling capacity of 12,000 BTUs. During heat-only operation, this Friedrich heat pump delivers up to 14,000 BTUs of heat at 47 degrees Fahrenheit and up to 11,000 BTUs of heat at 17 degrees Fahrenheit. This multi-functional model not only cools and heats efficiently, but it also provides fan-only operation and a dehumidification mode.
Use the 9,500-BTU air blower for rooms up to 400 square feet, and the 12,000-BTU air blower is ideal for rooms up to 550 square feet. This Friedrich mini-split heat pump will keep up to two zones feeling good all year long. You can also only heat or cool the zone you're using to conserve energy.
Programmable Timer: The 24-hour timer allows you to automate operation on your Friedrich air conditioner to maintain your designated settings while you’re away or asleep.
Auto-Swing Louvers: Each indoor air handler features air sweep louvers. To experience maximum comfort, use the air sweep function to direct cool air in an angle that best accommodates your needs.
Reusable Air Filter: This mini-split system is equipped with two washable air filters that have been treated to prevent mildew growth. Basic cleaning with warm water or a vacuum cleaner is recommended for every three months.
Sleep Mode: The sleep function keeps your space comfortable in cool, heat, and dry mode and it maintains a pleasant room temperature with quiet operation while you rest.
Frost Control: During low-temperature operation, frost may begin to collect inside the air handler. In the event of frost buildup, the compressor will automatically shut down until the frost melts, protecting the unit from any damage.
Minimal Upkeep: In addition to user-friendly operation, this dual-zone ductless air conditioner features hassle-free maintenance. To preserve your Friedrich mini-split air conditioner, wipe the front panel of the blower unit with a cold, damp cloth and clean the reusable air filters periodically.
Automatic Restart: In the event of a power failure, it will automatically resume operation in the last programmed setting once the power is restored. This feature protects the compressor, prevents circuit breaker damage, and ensures you won't come home to a super hot home if the power goes out while you're at work.
Quiet Operation: This ductless split system operates efficiently around the clock while emitting minimal sound. Because the condensing unit is positioned outside your home, the indoor blower is virtually silent for little to no noise disruption in your indoor environment even on the highest setting.
The Split System Advantage
While central ACs distribute maximum cooling output to reach a temperature throughout your entire space, dual-zone ductless split systems offer targeted cooling in each area you install a blower unit. For efficient operation, you can install your mini-split system in the rooms you spend the most time in. With the dual-zone air heat pump, you can cool 2 bedrooms simultaneously, or place one indoor blower in your bedroom and one in your living room.
Each blower unit is equipped with a remote control and a wall-mounted holder. To prevent your programmed settings from being accidentally adjusted, every remote has a distinct transmitter code that only corresponds with the appropriate blower unit. Multi-zone operation allows you to cool one space while dehumidifying another or heat one room while dehumidifying another. Additionally, you can adjust the cooling output to reach separate room temperatures.
Dual-zone cooling not only provides individualized cooling according to preference, but it also helps you reduce cooling costs. Having a dual-zone mini-split system allows you to turn the power off in an unoccupied space, while keeping another space comfortably cool. At night, for example, you can shut down operation in your living room and continue operation on the indoor blower in your bedroom while you sleep.
Cost-Effective Cooling Method
What sets Friedrich ductless mini-splits apart from typical ACs is their innovative cooling process. They start the cooling cycle with maximum power to cool your space faster using inverter technology. As heat is forced out of your space, the blower unit disperses cool air, lowering your room temperature to a comfortably cool level. This efficient cooling method helps you reach your ideal room temperature right away while conserving energy.
Unlike traditional air conditioners, which constantly cycle the compressor on and off causing uncomfortable temperature fluctuations, the Friedrich M21DYF Mini-Split accurately accesses your current room temperature and uses the appropriate fan speed to maintain a comfortable temperature. Inverter technology helps you avoid the up and down cooling process of traditional ACs and it consumes 30% less electricity.
